Ebron says he'll visit Bills in April



(WGR 550) -- As free agency winds down in the National Football League, the annual draft becomes to focal point for all 32 teams. The visits by players to team facilities will now be made up primarily of those that have yet to be drafted and the Buffalo Bills have a big name on the docket already.

Speaking on PFTLive, ProFootballTalk.com's daily show, North Carolina tight end Eric Ebron said he's already got four pre-draft visits lined up in April and that the Bills are one of them. Ebron is widely considered to be the top tight end available in the 2014 NFL Draft and a likely top-20 selection.

The tight end impressed at the 2014 NFL Combine after getting measured at just over 6-foot-4, 250-pounds and then ran a 4.6 40-yard dash during his workouts. Ebron was a big play target all year long for the Tar Heels, roping in 973 yards on just 62 catches during their 13 game season.

The three others Ebron included on his visit list were the Detroit Lions, Baltimore Ravens and Carolina Panthers. The Bills own the ninth overall selection, and it comes before all three of those teams.

Teams are allowed 30 official pre-draft visits every year.
